A man of many disguises, Sherlock Holmes reveals some of his skills, talents, abilities, and mustaches in Crimes & Punishments' first gameplay-centric video! Watch as Holmes begins investigating the mysterious case of Black Peter with its various twists and turns, as you're led on a journey of intrigue, red-herrings, and interrogations, before its release at the end of September on PS4®, PS3®, Xbox One®, Xbox 360®, and PC.

Having featured in all major gaming events recently, this is the first time players will get a prolonged and in-depth look at the game and its mechanics; from dressing up in a passable disguise to gain information, to throwing harpoons at dead pigs in a test of might, this 23 minute long video - with developer voice-over - is the most complete look at Crimes & Punishments yet.

Viewers will be privy to a range of features from the title, which takes place chronologically throughout a case. However, please note the video only shows a small part of the first of the six cases the game will ask you to solve. The video is devoid of spoilers, and the ultimate conclusion shown may not be the correct one, one among many possible denouements of this specific case, designed to show the range and scope conclusions each case can reach depending on what evidence is collected, and how it's all joined together by the player in the deduction space.

Enjoy visiting some of the many game mechanics found in Crimes & Punishments that will let you truly become the famous detective, and also the voice acting and rich atmosphere as Sherlock Holmes enjoys higher production values across the newest generation of consoles. This truncated case, shortened in the interest of spoilers and time, will teach players how to prepare their journey with Holmes' skills, and their wits.

About Crimes & Punishments
Crimes & Punishments marks the most important stage in the Sherlock Holmes series. The decision by Frogwares studios to switch from the in-house engine to the Epic Unreal Engine 3 enables a much richer, more immersive and detailed rendering of both the environments and characters.

But the change of game engine has not only improved the graphics; new investigation techniques have been developed and the game can now offer 14 game mechanics. From the opening of each of the six investigations up to the arrest of the culprits and the moral dilemmas faced by the players, the new game mechanics convey the feeling of BEING Sherlock Holmes. Players will therefore be able to exploit the incredible gifts and talents for which he is renowned, such as his ability to guess the details of an individual's life simply by observing them, or to imagine and reconstruct a past event by studying the key features of a crime scene.



Happy Gaming!

Wonderful video! 20 minutes is a treat compared to just 2 minutes in some other video previews. Everything is fresh and new and more realistic than ever. Deductions and evidence are handles in new and innovative way. Thoroughly enjoyable and I can't wait to play!

Thank you very much, Ana, for posting this.

It's interesting to see how they've changed the interface for the investigating, and how they've made it compatible with a console game controller.

It mentions DirectX11. The only other game I have that needs that is Civ 5 and it runs dog slow in that mode. Luckily
it allows you to run in DX9 mode as well which is a lot faster. Hope SH has the choice but fear it wont. This seems to be a game that's been created primarily with consoles in mind.

Thanks for the news BET wave

I'm playing the Testament for the moment and so far It's the best SH game on all plans in the series. praise

Now looking at the new with It's new features, wow It looks GREAT. Perhaps the only thing thats a bit on the ??? side are all the different endings (10 to each case)We will see how this will affect the my feeling for the game. I've played a lot of games having multiple endings and It's not necessarilyy a good thing. We will just have to wait, play and see.

Cheers

The multiple endings here are not like the usual ones; that you have to replay a lot.
It depends on your choice at a specific moment. You can change your mind and replay before you click on the ending.
